Every single PC or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software which communicates with the hardware equipment, including peripherals such as a mouse and a printer, as well as any apps that are installed on the system. Any program input using a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI) is processed by sending an Application Program Interface (API) request to the Operating System. On a web server, every single app runs within the parameters established by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etcetera. This is valid for both standard website scripts and server-side software such as a media server. In case a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two independent Operating Systems, named guest OS and host OS, so you'll be able to set up a different software environment on a single machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

We offer as many as 3 different Linux releases for the Operating System of our VPS servers - Debian, CentOS and Ubuntu. These are among the most stable and reliable OSs available on the market and we offer all 3 rather than just one as we realize that you may want to set up some software with specific requirements regarding the Operating System it shall run on. The latter is due to the fact that each of the three Operating Systems has a huge support community behind it and there're various software applications you can install on the web server. Your OS choice will also determine what hosting Control Panel can be installed on the VPS in case you wish to use one and for that reason we offer several Control Panels too. Should you decide that you need to have some other OS, our tech support team can quickly wipe the existing one and install the one that you need. In addition, we offer an optional service to have the OS on your VPS updated weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers that we offer can be set up with as many as 3 different Operating Systems because we want to give you more versatile packages which will allow you to install and run any kind of web software regardless of its system requirements. The options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most dependable and secure ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license fees. All three have a large number of developers that have created countless software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your web hosting server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use will depend on the Operating System that you choose when you register. If you need a different OS subsequently, it won't be a problem because we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by updating it every week with all patches which are released for it.
